    How sad! Their show ran on NBC 1966-68, but I remember The Monkees mainlyfrom about 1970 or 71 when reruns were aired on CBS Saturday or Sunday mornings and they enjoyed a resurgence in popularity. It was about this time that he famously appeared on The Brady Bunch and kissed Marcia on the cheek, which still remains unwashedLaughing.Davy sang lead on some of The Monkees biggest hits, like "Daydream Believer", "A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You", and "Valerie". 66 isn't so old, not anymore. RIP!.
